That's great !!! Where'd you find that? How do you keep it from blowing away when it gets real, real, windy?

I'd like to put one of them up in the driveway just to keep the boat under during the summer months.

I keep mine under a King Canopy year round. Makes for a cheap but very functional garage $800. Keeps all rain, snow, ice etc off the boat and I can have good access to work on it anytime.

The "tent" is 14 x 42 x 15 ft tall and is anchored to the ground with 22 (one on each pole) anchors that are 2-3 ft deep. Found it online for 2K. They come is various quality levels and I upgraded most everything I could. (10 mil "tent" material, galvanized instead on powder coated poles, double doors, vents, etc) I wouldn't consider it very portable for summer only use. It takes about 24 hours of labor to build the frames and anchor them into the ground. I'd hate to try and remove them every fall.

Mine's parked in the drive. I used to have it in front of the house till a neighbor complained to the county code enforcer.
As far as I know there isn't anyplace local that had indoor space large enough to hold the boat and trailer. Even if I did find one I'm not sure I could afford it. Last I looked a local storage place wanted 120.00 a month for out side storage.

I store all of mine outside, all with full covers. I don't have to fool with any snow, but I have to blow the leaves off it after a hurricane passes by.

mines outside in the driveway as we speak, had to go out at 9pm 1am 6am 12noon and 6pm to clean snow off. Years past I have built all kinds of crap to keep the snow off my other boats, this year just procrastinated, it does suck !! gotta come up w/ something, was thinking a 10X20 king canopy from overtons for 199.00..
